May 6 & 7, 2023
In 2022, we helped relaunch Art in Wilder Park with a widely successful festival that attracted over 7,500 visitors. As lead producer in 2023, we’ve set our sights on an even larger, more inclusive, and accessible event for the whole family. Programming will feature over 125 booths of one-of-a-kind art, food vendors, and hands-on kid’s activities.
In 2022 the event was voted one of the Best in the West, featured in numerous press outlets, and attracted nearly half of its visitors from outside Elmhurst.

SUPERHEROES IN WILDER PARK
